I’m a husband, father, and a political sociologist researching migration, ethnicity and nationalism. In various projects I have also explored the social implications of urban heritage, public discourse and international education. My approach to research is comparative, interdisciplinary and multimethodological. In my work I combine participant observation, qualitative interviewing, archival research, survey methods and statistical modelling. I’m passionate about open social science and storytelling, and I’m learning about probabilistic reasoning and Bayesian inference. I am currently a Lecturer in Sociology at Newcastle University (UK), where I mainly teach research methods courses.
